I'm going through withdraw. We finally got the contractors, insurance and mortgage companies in agreement to start the repairs to our home from Sandy. They started with the roof a few weeks ago but had quite a few weather delays. Now, they are now tearing up the side of the roof where my chimney is so NO FIRE tonight since the roof is all tarped up (unexpected rafter damage) until they cone back tomorrow So, without my cozy, wonderful fire, I'm freezing. Yes, the thermostat says 68 and that danged furnace is running and running but I swear it feels like 58! My nose is so cold I'm sitting here with my face in my sweatshirt up to my eyeballs, it's ridiculous! I was just getting used to noticing the HUGE difference in how warm the house was where the insulation and roof has been done. The draft from my kitchen, without the stove heating up the downstairs feels like there is a window open - can't wait for the new insulation and siding on that part of the house. I won't know how to adjust as the kitchen is easily about 48 degrees, super cold draft hole of the house. What I can't believe is that we lived like this for 8 years before putting in the stove. Not even the painful thought of how much we spent on oil, we were never warm! Look at your stoves tonight and appreciate the warmth. This is just one night but sitting here staring at my dark stove is just killing me!
